What does Verizon offer in the way of wireless modem/routers?

My stepson currently has verizon DSL service and right now has a single port, Westell 6100 modem/router for a wired connection only.  He's getting a new laptop and wants to continue to connect his desktop machine directly to the modem/router but wants to connect the laptop using it's built-in wireless "N" NIC.

The issue is that my stepson is VERY non-technical and I feel very stongly that the best direction for him is to go with a wireless modem/router that is provided by and supported by Verizon.  Can anyone tell me what make/model of wireless modem/routers Verizon is offering and whether any of them are supporting wireless "N" vs. the older wireless "G" standard?

Hello there,

You are on the right track!

I just traveled this road myself. You're right if you don't use verizon equipment nothing else will work.

Contact verizon DSL support tell them based on your application you want a VersaLink Model 7500 by Westell

It's a 4 port plus wireless combo modem/router.

It will address all your application wishes. Tech support  will assist you with the set up.

Trust me you are going to love this Westell hardware.

Hope this helps Good luck!

According the Doc at http://www22.verizon.com/residentialhelp/highspeed/networking/setup/questionsthree/99175.htm it looks like all of the Verizon modem/routers are all designed to comply with the wireless B/G standard, not the N standard.  If this is old information and anyone knows of a verizon-supported wireless N modem/router, let me know.
